Access easily Programs, Folders, Settings, Web Sites, with Favorite Launcher

I have tried a lot of launchers, using some of them even for months, to abandon them all for Favorite Launcher.

Favorite Launcher is superb in three ways: speed, simplicity and power.

Speed doesn’t need lengthy descriptions: you press the shortcut (or click the tray icon) and the Launcher appears instantly.

Simplicity: Favorite Launcher won’t bother you with complex interfaces or heavy graphics, it is configured in a Spartan-simple manner, using a simple text (ini) file, where you can define your shortcuts, paths to folders and files, organize menus and submenus, etc. You know (and backup) your configuration or change it easily.

This is what I like most, but if you prefer adding favorite folders and programs using a graphical interface instead of editing a text file, don’t bother to read more, Favorite Launcher is not for you.

Power: Favorite Launcher will not only open programs, files and folders — it will let you paste favorite paths whenever a dialogue asks for such information, e.g. when you are saving or opening a file in your text or photo or video editor, etc.

For this reason Favorite Launcher lets you have two shortcuts, a Paster and a Launcher.”

To ensure a trouble-free installation, right-click the setup file and select the option “Run as administrator.” You need also to make sure after the installation is complete, that the program folder and files have write permissions. Finally, to avoid UAC prompts upon startup you can include Favorite Launcher in a whitelist of trusted applications.
